Isn't That for Sorority Girls?: Narratives of College Men in Service-Learning
Foste, Zak; Jones, Susan R.
Journal of Student Affairs Research and Practice, v55 n1 p65-77 2018
The purpose of this study was to examine how gender structured and informed the ways in which 10 undergraduate men experienced service-learning courses. Participant narratives underscore a perceived tension between dominant expectations of masculinity among men on campus and service-learning. In particular, service was largely understood as a feminine endeavor with little utility to men beyond high school. These expectations were often reinforced by other men and service site supervisors.
